About Us

Poppy’s Peanuts is a family owned and operated business –
Started by Joseph Grossman in 1949 on Ogontz Avenue; his son, Ivan joined him in April, 1952 when he returned home from the army and opened up at Zerns Farmers Market in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania.  Jeff has been running the business solo since dad’s retirement twenty years ago.  The business has seen many changes, growing along the way.  Today, our daughter, Carly manages the store with Jeff, continuing the family tradition.
We take pride in providing our customers with FRESH nuts ~made to order~.  We are famous for our cashews, mixed nuts, and cinnamon-toffee nuts of all kinds (cashews, pecans, peanuts or the nuts of your choosing.) Our nuts are cooked in pure peanut oil.
Our 100 year old peanut roaster continues to work hard to dry-roast peanuts in the shell light, medium or dark roast for your pleasure!  We invite you to come see for yourself.  The delicious aroma of everything cooking will lead you right to us (door 13 in the farmers market.)  Our nuts keep our customers coming back week after week.  We invite you to come see for yourself!
Satisfaction is always guaranteed.
